Overview

The Parallax Motor, Bracket & Wheel Kit delivers power, durability and simplicity all in one box. The lightweight yet sturdy aluminum brackets are specifically designed to make mounting the included 6–15 V DC gear motors a breeze. Each bracket is machined in-house at Parallax headquarters in Rocklin, CA. The brackets are machined from 6063 aluminum extrusion and anodized black for improved scratch resistance aesthetic appeal. High quality DC motors feature durable construction and 100% all-metal gears stand up boldly to rough terrain. The included machined aluminum hubs solidly engage the 4 7/8 inch (12.4 cm) diameter wheels. The tread is molded directly onto the wheel and offers excellent traction on most common surfaces. Giving your robot mobility has never been easier!
